Title for this chapter: Settling In
Published by LANNING | Thursday, November 29, 2018 1:32 AM
Okay, inspired by my friend and mentor Jim Harstad, and encouraged by his being encouraged about his own writing, I'm posting the latest installment of a saga I'm working on that charts my journey to the Ph.D program in English at the University of Hawai'i. Hopefully Bamboo Buckaroo won't remove this from the site due to language or boredom concerns. This too is a rough draft. A little background: I arrived for grad school in Madison, Wisconsin around two in the morning. I called my folks from a payphone in the parking lot of a Dunkin' Donuts, then found a church parking lot I could sleep in for the rest of the night. The 100-book list is a list of books I was required to read to get ready for my M.A. comprehensive exam at UW Madison.
